KALEIDOSCOPE

March 31 - December 23
RHSV Gallery Downstairs, 239 A'Beckett St
Melbourne, Victoria 3000 Australia

This exhibition is biography imagined through the lens of a Kaleidoscope. The viewer is offered fragments of the lives represented here. There is no linear narrative. Each time the kaleidoscope turns, a different story emerges. There are repeating patterns but different emphases and new ways of seeing, new reflections, new refractions. No one story dominates and one story does not fit all.
